Senchō Kinopio, Paper Mario: The Origami King

Senchō Kinopio is a character in Paper Mario: The Origami King. He is a pleasant purple Toad with a captain's hat and vest. As it would suggest, he is the captain of the Princess Peach. He requests Mario find the missing passengers and rewards him with a Collectible Treasure for doing so. He has a tendency to use the word "toot" frequently in his dialogue.


Senchō Kinopio is first seen after Mario defeats Paper Macho Gooper Blooper, being rescued along with many other members of his crew. He thanks Mario for rescuing him, claiming that he was not afraid of Gooper Blooper and anyone who says otherwise are liars. Before Mario leaves the ship, the Senchō Kinopio informs him of passengers who had abandoned ship and are stranded in the foggy sea.

After the fog is lifted from the Great Sea, Senchō Kinopio will be notified of it when Mario comes aboard the Princess Peach. If Mario has repaired all the Not-Bottomless Holes on the ship, the captain will be able to pilot the ship across the ocean in search for the passengers. Once Mario leaves the ship, Senchō Kinopio reassumes his position at the helm, and the Princess Peach starts to traverse the ocean. Mario must travel to various islands in the Great Sea and rescue all the Toads on those islands if he hasn't done so yet; after Mario saves the last Toad and leaves the island where he found that Toad, he will receive a notification that all the passengers who abandoned The Princess Peach have been found and rescued. When Mario returns to the ship thereafter, one of the crew credits him for everyone making it back in one piece and directs him to the captain, who wants to personally thank Mario for his efforts. Mario must go to the wheelhouse, where he finds Senchō Kinopio piloting the ship. When spoken to, he thanks Mario for safely returning the passengers and rewards him with Collectible Treasure No. 56: The Princess Peach.
